He owned and operated Floyd's Pump Service and was always available to his customers. No matter if it was a holiday or the middle of the night he would go out to make sure they had running water. More than once his wife was right beside him holding a flashlight while he worked. He was always on the move, accepting invitations, learning new things and could converse on any topic. At 87 he discovered e-mail so he could stay close to family. He especially loved spending time with his special canine neighbor and best buddy, Jack. He was a parishioner of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Danbury. Floyd is survived by son, Terry M. Leach of Danbury; daughter, Deborah R. Carey and her husband, Robert, of Shaftsbury; grandchildren, Julie Bushee and her husband, James, Jeremy Carey, and Nicole Cave and her husband, Charles, all of Bennington; great-grandchildren, Justin Carey, Noelle Cave, Drelend Carey, and Ariana Bushee; brother-in-law, James Walters; and sister-in-law, Marlene Santako, both of Connecticut.
